I would be fine with that trio. Especially since it increases chances of a Zootopia sequel.

Yes, maybe it’s not a bad idea to have more than one person overseeing the projects, especially for that last reason you mention. When only one person is in charge sometimes the films can start to resemble one another a bit too much, as it was happening with Lasseter in some respects.

Here's hoping we get into a new Golden Age, away from the Pixar pest.

I'am another one who thinks there should be more than one Person in charge. I think Disney and Pixar have been influencing eachother in ways that have produced decent to great films but also made them less distinct as studios. A good film is a good film but a studio need to have their own touch :ears: :eye:

Lee emerges as the frontrunner to lead WDAS.

Quote:
Jennifer Lee, a director of “Frozen,” is expected to be promoted at Walt Disney Animation, and Pete Docter, the director of films like “Up” and “Inside Out,” is expected to take on greater responsibilities at Pixar, according to a person briefed on the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because plans had not been finalized.

This is interesting news. Both are deserving so I'm glad for this turn of events.

I really hope this is true. Not just for Lasseter being gone, but because I like both Lee and Docter for Frozen and Inside Out, respectively.

I personally prefer Lee over Doctor though...I liked UP as much as the next guy..but I personally hated Inside Out from start to finish. I also dont like the fact that Doctor doesn't distance himself more from this Lasseter debacle.

I don't think he's allowed to. Disney trusts their studio employees (including pixar) to stay quite about sensitive stuff like this. Its why anyone who speaks out thus far has been anonymous.

Lee made a specific reference to telling "original stories" in her statement. Could this mean we'll be seeing more original projects than sequels under her reign? I wonder if this stems from her being forced to do a sequel to Frozen and drop the original film she and Chris Buck were working on.

Quote:
Said Lee in a statement: “I am deeply grateful to everyone at Walt Disney Animation Studios and The Walt Disney Company for this opportunity. Animation is the most collaborative art form in the world, and it is with the partnership of my fellow filmmakers, artists, and innovators that we look ahead to the future. My hope is to support the incredible talent we have, find new voices, and work together to tell original stories. The great films of Disney Animation — the films I loved as a kid and my daughter has grown up loving — are magical, timeless and full of heart, and it is our goal to create films that carry on and grow this 95-year legacy for future generations.”

Let's hope so. While Disney are usually known for adapting well known stories, it's nice when they do original stories. And yes, even if this mean a non-sequel route.

so with lasseter out of the way, will those proposed sequels, like frozen 2, still go ahead or can they be "shelved" by the creative team? i know much of it will come down to how far into production they are, but if they are still in the early stages, can they be scrapped?

I would say Frozen 2 is too far into development and production to scrap. And even if it wasn't - there would be enormous pressure on WDAS from up top to get it done as it is a sure money-maker. However, beyond that I suppose we can be optimistic.

It’s more likely Lee would be forced to resign than the Frozen sequel would be cancelled. No matter who sits at the head of WDAS, the Disney company’s #1 and only love is $$$.

I'm sure Lee will try to fight for more original stories, but I doubt she'll have any success stopping Disney's sequel roll. The whole reason they were eager to jump into 3D was so they'd have their own cash cows just like PIXAR and Dreamworks.

It's so refreshing seeing Lee in this position instead of Lasseter.

Her first public appearence after her promotion. Lee and Docter have replaced Lasseter at Disney and Pixar. But what about Walt Disney Imagineering? Lasseter used to be Principal Creative Advisor, but as far as I know, not much has been mentioned about a replacement.

This is nitpicky but they should really fire their video editor for not adjusting the brightness levels on that video.

Its not that hard.

^^ :lol:

Jennifer Lee (on seeing the video online): "WHO IN BLOODY HELL MADE ME LOOK ABOUT AS HEALTHY AS AN ANAEMIC GHOST PREYED UPON BY VAMPIRE BATS WITH BOTTOMLESS STOMACHS!!!? I WANT HIS HEAD ... ON A PLATE!! :angry: "

Ms Lee suddenly feels an incredible energy surging through her body making the walls of her office reverberate.

Lee: "OMG ... these must be the storied superpowers enjoyed by a certain ex-chief creative officer within the various departments of the Disney Studios! No! I cannot let them consume me! I must not be contaminated and corrupted by such evil forces! (screams) I wish I never requested the video editor's head on a plate!!!"

This has to be the stupidest thing I've written on this site in, like, ten years. It does bring good memories of writing retarded skits for the UD Forum Awards, though. :P
